MMEE 2009 had a Darwinian flavour, in honour of the bicentenary of Darwin's birth, and 150 years since the publication of The Origin of Species. While not a mathematician himself, Darwin's ideas find natural expression in the form of mathematical models, allowing further development and refinement of the theory. This two-day meeting will showcased the latest developments of formal models in evolution and ecology, and included keynote addresses on the mathematical modelling of Darwin's key theories and insights.
